Devolver Digital has released a new game onto Google Play, called NOT A HERO, in what appears to be a limited release in terms of the devices it supports.

The Skylanders franchise has gotten a new game added to its catalog today called Skylanders Battlecast. This particular game has been in a region-specific soft launch for a bit now, but today is the game’s global launch. The interesting part about this game is that it follows the Skylanders tradition of having a physical product that players can purchase in stores. So, just like with the Skylanders figurines that you can scan into your games, Skylanders Battlecast physical cards can be purchased and scanned into this game as well.

Released by Zojoi and Reverb Triple XP, desktop classic Shadowgate is now available for Android and Amazon devices.

This isn’t a straight port from the late 80s though, as gameplay had been updated along with achievements, cut scenes, and new puzzles having been added in as well.
iNCEPTIONAL, makers of iLectronz, Light Hero, Santa Saga, Tap to Flap, Namespace, Smash Doors, and Pix Picas, have now added their entire library of games over on Amazon’s Appstore.
